“Copy that, Kapton”, a review of Sam Keogh’s Kapton Cadaverine performance at the Kerlin Gallery

February 24, 2018 – 3:02 pm |

“The space that situates the performance is so thoroughly inseparable from the performance that it would have been non-sensical to not textually indulge in this rich scenario by Sam Keogh. Everything from the control panel the astronaut heavily interacts with to the see through plastic panelling of the walls in the spaceship that allows the audience to see the performance from all sides in a voyeuristic fashion are all aspects of the symbiotic relationship the space shared with the performing body.” – Sara Muthi responds to Sam Keogh’s performance and exhibition at the Kerlin Gallery, up now on in:Action
